PIXMA MG2522 Light blinks 2 times, error code 5100


I have a Canon MG2522. It has a service blink code 2 times. Paper is in and I can’t find any obstructions. The ink cartridge slides halfway to the left and halfway to the right and ends up close to the middle when starting up and then gives me the same blink code. On the computer it said source code 5100 and I’ve researched everywhere and can’t figure out why it isn’t working. It’s the correct paper and in it correctly. Only issue I see is the ink cartridge doesn’t make a full round like something is stopping it but there isn’t anything in it and it changes where it stops depending on where you have it when it starts. Anybody can help?
